Long term car parking or storage

Hi, I am looking for all year round parking or vehicle storage facilities close to Geneva airport. I would like to leave a vehicle in storage/parking in readiness for our frequent visits to Geneva. I don't want to hire cars for weeks on end, especially in the winter when we need a 4X4, due to snow in the ski resorts.

I have many friends in the same situation and perhaps we could all contribute to a car and the parking, with the advantage of popping on a cheap flight from the UK, knowing that within a short taxi ride, we can access our own car.

Does anyone else have a solution?? Ideally!!!!!!!The parking space would have an electrical hook up, to enable the car to be kept fully charged.

Thank you

Regards

This may also be useful as a few of the car parks offer monthly rates eg CFF at the airport. Not cheap though you could walk to the car from the plane.

Thank you very much Jon. This also sounds like a good option which I will now investigate. It would be easier if I could walk to the car park from the airport.

Hi Carole,

Yes I managed to find a very secure parking spot in an underground office block, 5 minutes from the airport. The parking lot has a roller shutter door and you are given yor own key for access at any time. The office block is in a commercial area which all seems very quiet and safe. I had the last space available, but if you follow the link posted above by Worldvoyager, you will find various estate agents who specialise in parking lots around Geneva.

The parking space will cost around £1,100.00 per year which may be expensive, but is certainly makes quick weekend visits much simpler. I will keep a car in the parking space all year round and when we are not using it, we have friends and family who want to use it. Therefore, it all makes sense especially as we go skiing for at least 6 weeks per year and hiring a 4x4 costs a fortune.

Hi Carole,

The area where we found the parking space is called Grand Saconnex. But, if you find a parking space on the web site link which Worldvoyager listed, and you are not sure of the location, go to the below Geneva map web site and type the address or area into the search tool. It worked well for me.
